ROWING’S FIRST DAY OF THE LAKE NATOMA INVITATIONAL IN THE BOOKS

GOLD RIVER, Calif. -- Sacramento State's women's varsity eight, second varsity eight, varsity four, second varsity four and a pair of novice eights all competed today in the first day of the Lake Natoma Rowing Invitational at the Sacramento State Aquatic Center.

The two-day, nine-team regatta features a powerhouse lineup that includes six nationally ranked teams, not to mention five of the top nine programs in the nation. Among those schools at the event are top-ranked Cal, No. 4 USC, No. 6 Brown, No. 7 Stanford, No. 9 Notre Dame and No. 20 San Diego. Oklahoma, which is receiving votes in the poll, are also competing in the regatta with Sacramento State and Kansas. The Hornets are co-hosting the event with Cal.

All nine schools competed in a morning and afternoon session today, and were grouped into Sunday's grand finals, petite finals or third-level finals based on today's heats. Nearly every heat during both the morning and afternoon sessions were comprised of a three-boat field.

Sacramento State's novice eight A boat will compete in a petite final tomorrow morning while the varsity eight, second varsity eight and varsity four will race in third-level finals. The novice eight will race at 8 a.m., while the varsity four will go at 8:20 a.m., the second varsity eight will race at 8:50 a.m. and the varsity eight will go at 9:20 a.m. The Hornets' novice eight A entry will race in its petite final against Kansas and Cal. All other finals for Sacramento State tomorrow are third-level finals, and will see the Hornets take on Oklahoma and Kansas in each of those races.

Sacramento State's varsity eight posted times of 6:55.0 in the morning, and 7:10.4 in the afternoon, but both times were only good enough for third place in the three-team field. The Hornets' second varsity eight raced to times of 7:02.0 and 7:17.8, good for third place in both its heats. The Hornets' novice eight A finished third in its race with a time of 7:40.5 while the B entry finished fourth in its race at 8:10.7. The varsity four posted times of 7:42.8 in the morning, and 8:08.4 in the afternoon.

The second varsity four finished fourth its heat with a time of 8:00.6, and later finished fourth in its petite final with a time of 8:25.4.
